Can you tell me more about the judging process?
The decision of naming the 2019 Ram 1500 the Truck of Texas did not come lightly. The entire process led the journalists to test the truck in challenging weather. This weather included weather conditionings during the Hill Country floods. This meant torrential rain during an off-roading course, which anyone is aware can be tricky. A large portion of the driving segment also came on the road, where journalists were impressed with the four-wheel drive capability that helped while going up slippery hills. The deep mud was also a challenge, but the Ram 1500 didn’t let up. At the end of the test drive, the journalists based their judgement on personal appeal, value, performance, exterior, and interior. This means that while the 2019 Ram 1500 is a killer when it comes to off-roading, it was the whole package that truly won the judges over.
